Little Venice

To the west of St John’s Wood is popular Maida Vale and its distinctive neighbour, Little Venice, which together are considered among London’s prime residential areas. Well-known for stunning period houses and flats, Maida Vale has a wide range of quality housing stock which are situated either along leafy boulevards or even along the Regent’s Canal waterfront. 

Swiss Cottage

The epicentre for this area is the intersection between Avenue Road and Finchley Road where Swiss Cottage Underground station is located. This lively area features many shops, the Hampstead Theatre (which also hosts a regular farmer’s market in its courtyard), the Swiss Cottage Community Centre, and of course, the Ye Old Swiss Cottage itself.

Queen’s Park

Queens’s Park offers a number of architectural styles to suit a wide range of tastes and budget requirements. The area itself takes its name from the central park, which is named to honour Queen Victoria. The park serves as the focal point for both new developments and the local residents alike and boasts 30 acres of open space. It is extremely well equipped for those of all ages, with facilities including tennis courts, a pitch-and-putt golf course, a children’s playground, an animal farm and a café, and has been awarded Green Flag status for the past 17 years.

West Hampstead

Not to be outdone by its famous and popular neighbour to the East, West Hampstead has come into its own in recent years. Property in this area is focused around the main thoroughfare of West End Lane, which connects Finchley Road with Edgware Road. The neighbourhood has an upmarket yet laid back feel and offers good access to amenities, as well as numerous good quality pubs, bars and restaurants to enjoy. 

Primrose Hill

Close to one of the best-loved Royal Parks of London, Regent’s Park, and boasting impressive views over London from the top of iconic Primrose Hill Park, this unique neighbourhood is one of London’s most popular urban villages. Boasting green leafy streets and relative tranquillity, the City and West End are just a stone’s throw away.


Immediately north of Oxford Street, Fitzrovia offers tremendous growth potential thanks to the new Crossrail station at Tottenham Court Road and the fact that it is slightly less gentrified than the neighbouring areas.

With an intricate network of winding streets, alleyways and leafy squares, it is a fascinating area to explore. Primarily home to grand townhouses, many of which have been converted to flats and offices, Fitzrovia property is highly sought after for those who want a central, yet relatively tranquil base.


Home to the Wigmore Hall, Selfridge’s, the Wallace Collection and celebrity hotspot the Chiltern Firehouse, Marylebone has firmly shaken off its slightly dowdy image of old and transformed itself into one of the most fashionable areas to live in Central London.


Whilst Camden Town (commonly referred to as simply Camden) is focused around its iconic Camden High Street, the neighbourhood is probably most famous for its street markets. In total, the area boasts five markets, selling an incredible selection of food, clothing, antiques, jewellery, souvenirs, and other unique treasures. Each market is bustling throughout the week and becomes exceptionally busy on the weekends.

St John’s Wood

Bordering one of the best-loved Royal Parks of London, Regent’s Park, St John’s Wood offers a peaceful village atmosphere that is mere minutes from London’s West End, making the area eternally popular with house hunters due to its wide variety of architectural styles. Walking its leafy streets you will find grand Regency villas, large stucco-fronted Victorian terraced houses, spacious 1930s mansion blocks and 1960s apartment blocks, alongside a number of contemporary purpose-built developments.
